Well since its too dang hot in my shop right now…..This is a table i built for a guy in the video production business. Its not my design. He gave me a photo and i designed it from that. The table is built from MDF and nevamar laminate. The wood is maple.

I like it. I do a little video editing and really wish I could get two monitors. It would really be a help.

I like the style of this piece. Very modern. I use to not like modern style, but it is growing on me. Although most of what I build is country, shaker, or craftsman style I would like to build a piece like this.

Keep up the good work (woodworking and videos).

I would probably fill every bit of space with stuff. I’m a surface filer.

But, It looks great.

Miles125, this table is awesome. Very handsome! and I love the design. Your shop looks like ours!

I am thinking of remodeling a table with a Formica center and removing what is there and then replacing it with another color. Maybe you can help me with the challenge of this. How easily can Formica be removed and replaced? (Can it?) If the outside 2” edge is wood can that be salvaged while the formica is being removed/replaced? Since the table already exists, should I try to take off the 2” of wood so that I can flush cut the formica that I am replacing then re-attach the wood?

I have heard that lacquer thinner will help remove the Formica, have you ever done that? Actually, I had considered using a flush cutting bit with a router to remove it. Thoughts?

those are all great questions ellen—-consider starting a “forum” question…when I started one on some questions I had…boy howdy did the community respond…

Miles—-great piece! I love the edges…and I agree with RobH—-this is great “modern” style—-because it is so beautifully done it could go well anywhere…

Thanks for all the nice compliments. Ellen, laquer thinner usually works. I have run into older formica that just wants to come off in dime size chips no matter what you do. Just put you some thinner in a glue bottle with a small tip so you can pry and squirt at the same time. I’d say your chances are good it will come up in big pieces. Not removing the wood is going to prove especially difficult though im afraid if youre looking for a good flush fit. Good Luck!
